On the weekend of 26 and 27 January, Brunel University Sailing Club hosted the Brunel Badger team racing event at Datchet Water Sailing Club. 

In total, eleven teams competed over two days' racing, making this year's event the largest it has ever been.

Conditions on the Saturday were extremely favourable, allowing for the completion of 30 races, before strong Sunday winds forced the organisers to abandon racing early for what remained of the second day.

The school's VII beat older and more experienced University teams on the way to victory in the tournament, finishing ahead of Bournemouth and Reading University respectively.
